Thumbs down Fieldsheer Apollo Pants

I bought a pair of Fieldsheer Apollo pants last March from an online retailer.

All I have to say is I WILL NEVER BUY FIELDSHEER TEXTILE GEAR AGAIN!!!

The 3rd time I wore them, the top waist snap fell off in my hand. I emailed Fieldsheer and was promised they would send me new snaps, and I would pay to have a local tailor put them on to save time and shipping. I never got new snaps. 2 weeks later, the other snap broke off. During the course of the rest of last summer, the button that attaches the liner in the left leg fell out, the left knee protector pocket tore and had to be resown, a hole wore through the seat of the pants, and just this week, the zipper pull for the jacket attachment broke right off in my hand. I do not abuse my gear, and these pants have never been crashed in. I emailed Fieldsheer, and they have not even bothered to reply.

Be warned, these pants SUCK!!!

I also have 2 Leather Fieldsheer jackets and 1 pair of leather pants, no problems so far. The textile sucks though.

L8RGYZ is an unknown quantity at this point
Sorry to hear the textile pants were sub-standard. My Fieldsheer leather jacket has been great for 6 years.
